Magnetic resonance imaging apparatus and high radio frequency coil unit



The present invention relates to a magnetic resonance imaging apparatus and a high frequency coil unit for switching a plurality of coil parts with a simpler structure. According to one embodiment, the high radio frequency coil unit includes coil elements, first switching parts and second switching parts. The coil elements are arranged in a first direction and a second direction. Each of the first switching parts and each of the second switching parts are installed in a corresponding coil element of the coil elements and switch the corresponding coil element between an on state and an off state. At least two of the first switching parts are connected in series in the first direction by a first control signal line. At least two of the second switching parts are connected in series in the second direction by a second control signal line.
